Protesters demand resignation of Kurdish government

ARBIL, Iraq - Thousands of protesters in Iraq's semi-autonomous Kurdistan region called on Monday for the immediate resignation of the entire regional government, saying it had failed to provide democracy and justice.
The Kurdish zone, dominated for decades by two political parties, has seen continuous protests for more than a month against corruption and a lack of freedom, inspired by uprisings throughout the Middle East.
Protesters have camped out since February in the main square of Sulaimaniya -- the second-largest city in the Kurdish region -- to press for change.
